Our Values

Trust and Transparency
Building trust between VCP and the business owner is our paramount concern, as we believe that a trusting relationship engenders a successful outcome for both VCP and the seller.

To that end, we will be candid and transparent about our approach and evaluation throughout the entire process so that we can manage each other’s expectations appropriately, whether or not a transaction ultimately ends up taking place.

Our collective team is accountable to a large number of stakeholders in the business community. Our reputation defines us, and you can be sure that we will remain highly focused on your goals and those of the business throughout the transaction process.

We understand that a business owner has spent years cultivating a culture that cannot be replicated and is core to the business’ success. We are committed to upholding the company culture and presence within the community so that the business may preserve the foundation on which it has succeeded.
